Shock United star to join Varane in saying goodbye at Old Trafford on Wednesday, farewell T-shirt has been printed – report

According to reports, Aaron Wan-Bissaka will say goodbye to the Manchester United supporters at Old Trafford on Wednesday along with teammate Raphael Varane.

Eddie Howe’s Newcastle will play United at home in a crucial Premier League match that will most likely determine who plays in the Europa League.

Erik ten Hag’s team is three points behind the Magpies in sixth place going into the game.

For United supporters, the club formally announced on Tuesday that Raphael Varane will leave at the end of the season after his contract expires.

Chris Wheeler of The Daily Mail noted that a decision was made to part ways with the Frenchman after an agreement couldn’t be found on extending his terms on vastly reduced financial terms.

 

Varane is therefore set to become a free agent in the coming weeks.

Anthony Martial, a compatriot citizen whose tenure at United is also coming to an end, will accompany him. Martial’s contract expires in a few weeks, just as Varane’s. Although the Red Devils have the option to retain him for a further year, it is not anticipated that the team will use this option.

Martial and Varane will bid farewell to United supporters on Wednesday at the Theatre of Dreams, but they won’t be the only ones—Wan-Bissaka will also be joining them, according to The Sun.

An image of Wan-Bissaka lifting the Carabao Cup has even been produced on a T-shirt in his honor, according to the publication.

“Wan-Bissaka, 26, has a year left on his deal but Manchester United are willing to listen to cut-price offers.”

“United will probably have to take a hit on the player and drop their asking price to around £20m.”

Right-back signed a contract worth approximately £45 million plus £5 million in add-ons in July 2019 after leaving Crystal Palace. Although the Englishman has had a few standout performances while wearing the United shirt, overall, he has not lived up to the money paid to acquire his services.

Diogo Dalot has established himself as the starting full-back this season, and given the Reds’ ongoing links to players like Jeremie Frimpong and others, Wan-Bissaka may not have much room at the team going forward.

If indeed The Sun are to be believed and Wan-Bissaka is certainly on his way out, the full-back will not be short of suitors. Former employers Crystal Palace, West Ham and Wolverhampton Wanderers have all been mentioned to be eyeing him.
